The internet is taken by a storm, with people posting aged pictures of themselves, thanks to the application called FaceApp that resurfaced recently. Celebrities across various platforms took to social media to post aged pictures of themselves, leaving the netizens in splits of laughter and in some cases awe and admiration.
What is FaceApp?
FaceApp is a mobile application for iOS and Android developed by Russia company Wireless Lab which uses neural network technology to automatically generate highly realistic transformations of faces in photographs. The app can transform a face to make it smile, look younger, look older, or even change gender.
Who's joined the party?
From athletes to celebrities, everyone tried the new FaceApp challenge and took to both Instagram and Twitter to post an aged photo of themselves. Here are some of the big names who tried the new app:
